Bayern Munich reinstated their dominance in the Bundesliga, after a thumping 3-0 win over FC Schalke in the midweek fixture. The Bavarians were simply unstoppable, as goals from James Rodriguez, Robert Lewandowski, and Arturo Vidal, guided them to an easy victory against the Gelsenkirchen outfit. The win takes Bayern back to the top spot, with Dortmund yet to play against HSV on Wednesday.

Here are the Bayern Munich player ratings in their dominating performance over Domenico Tedesco’s men.

Sven Ulreich (8.5/10): Manuel Neuer’s foot injury came as a shock for the Bayern faithful as the German International will be out for the rest of 2017. Second choice goalkeeper Sven Ulreich however, deputized him really well, making a couple of great saves to keep Schalke out from scoring.

Joshua Kimmich (8.5/10): Once again a solid display from the young starlet. Kimmich was confident against Bastian Oczipka and Amine Harit throughout the game. Although he suffered a little when Konoplyanka was deployed on the right flank.

Niklas Sule (8/10): Sturdy defensive display from the former TSG defender. Sule showed his immense game reading abilities, and also cleared out a few long balls from the midfield by the home side.

Javi Martinez(8/10): Did well to keep out the Schalke attack even though he was seen struggling a little against Guido Burgstaller. His dogged defensive display helped Bayern get the better of the Royal Blues.

Rafinha (7.5/10): A quiet yet an effective performance from Rafinha yet again. Though not as much impressive as Kimmich, Rafinha did just well enough to keep out the danger from the opposition.

Sebastian Rudy (8/10): Provided a calming presence in the centre of the midfield. Rudy acted as the midfield hub for Bayern, who pulled the strings throughout the game.

Corentin Tolisso (7.5/10): Struggled a little with the presence of Leon Goretzka in the opposing side. But his shots caused a lot of trouble for the Schalke defence.

Thomas Muller (7.5/10): A relatively good match for the German International. This might give Muller a lot of confidence as the games come thick and fast.

James Rodriguez (10/10): Without a doubt, James Rodriguez was the man of the match. The Colombian had his starting debut in the Bundesliga and marked that occasion with a gem of a performance. Apart from scoring a goal, the ex-Real Madrid attacker also provided a brilliant assist for the Vidal goal later on in the game.

Kingsley Coman (8/10): Literally murdered defender Thilo Kehrer on the left flank. Despite his lack of productive contributions in the offensive department, his runs always caused trouble for the Schalke defence.

Robert Lewandowski (8.5/10): Didn’t have many chances tonight, but took the only one he got, with aplomb, as he confidently converted the penalty for the opener. The Polish International leads the goal-scorers chart with six goals in five matches.


Thiago Alcantara (7.5/10): Replaced Corentin Tolisso to bring in more stability in midfield. Showed some slick movements and passing to keep the Schalke defence occupied.

Arturo Vidal (8/10): Didn’t take long to mark his arrival as he rifled home with a brilliant volley for Bayern’s third of the game.

Mats Hummels (NA): Came on for Javi Martinez in the final stages of the game, with coach Carlo Ancelotti having one eye on the weekend game against Wolfsburg.
